Creativity • Money • Love – Learning for the 21st Century
A look at how we can learn now and how libraries can play their part. New spaces for learning. A new world of collaboration and participation. The book as a ball of light. Co-producing a library?
I started off working in a radical bookshop and putting on arts events in the basement. That led to me spending the next 30 years messing about with cultural policy, programming, digital strategies, creative industries, and music. I’ve worked in the UK, the USA and South Africa with organisations big and small including Arts Council, Artangel, Touch, Punch, Glyndebourne, Tate, AEA, Arts Foundation, and British Council. With John3Shelagh I edited After The Crunch, Creativity • Money • Love and a forthcoming book on medical humanities. I am chair of A New Direction and was a trustee of Artangel, Artsadmin and the BBC PAF.
